Wow-

Seahawks win and get one post about a headshot from Clowney.

but the Pats lose and get 6 pages of hatred or defending accusations...

I think the one post of twisted panties was the best encapsulated statement.

 

ok folks, on to round 2!!

49ers by 7 over Minn

Balt by 9 over Tenn

KC by 9-1/2 over Houston

Packers by 4 over Hawks

 

there is always an upset isn’t there? Who will get upset next week?

I pick (duh) the Hawks to beat the Packers, and Minn to beat the 49ers

 

 

I like the Hawks over the Packers, and I dunno if Ten will actually win, but I predict it to be much closer than everyone expects. Otherwise I think KC and SF will take care of business.

Interesting read.  https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/08/23/washington-redskins-2013-coaching-staff-sean-mcvay-kyle-shanahan-matt-lafleur-mike-shanahan-rg3 

From 2010 to 2014, the Redskins had Kyle Shanahan, Sean McVay, Matt LaFleur, Mike LaFleur, Rich Scangarello and Mike McDaniel on their staff.  Shanahan, McVay and Matt LaFleur have all become head coaches in the NFL.  One would even suggest, they have become elite head coaches in the NFL.  The Redskins are still searching for anything respectable.  Shanahan has turned the 49ers into a Super Bowl contender.  McVay took the Rams to the Super Bowl a year ago.  LaFleur has turned the Packers around in very short order.  His younger brother Mike is one of the hottest assistants in the league along with Scangarello and McDaniel.  Quite a coaching tree for such an awful Redskins team.  Those kinds of coaching trees are usually found in Super Bowl contenders, not doormats of the league.

Dan Snyder is the worst owner in professional sports!

I think this is definitely something we can ALL agree on, regardless of who you root for!

Weak division or not, how did that win them 9 AFC championships and 6 Super Bowls? They had to play the best of every other division for every one of those wins. I'm not sure how you or anyone else can't see/understand that.

People should also keep in mind the Pats have a first place schedule every year meaning they play the top teams in other divisions.  Maybe that is why the Super Bowl loser rarely makes the playoffs the next year.  But at the end of the day who cares.

Brady to Denver.

Home teams hold serve this weekend.

Niners go all the way after getting a good look at Lamar during the regular season.

I’m more upset about the gifted TD during regulation. Our guy was all over Rudolph on that last play so I can’t be too upset about the ruling on the field. I can be upset about New York’s decision not to review it though.

I think 3 of the 4 home teams hold serve.  If the Vikings can hold New Orleans to 20 points, they can certainly beat the Niners.  A heavy dose of Dalvin Cook and a mistake free Kirk Cousins, I can see them upsetting the 48ers.

I don't see Seattle hanging with Green Bay at Lambeau Field.  Marshawn Lynch had 6 carries for 7 yards against Philly.  You just don't walk in off of the street without a few games under your belt, out of shape, and last more than 6 quarters in the NFL.  He'll probably get injured early in the game and be done forever.

I certainly think the Titans can hang with the Ravens if they can run Derrick Henry like they did against New England.  I still think the Ravens will win, but I don't know if they will cover whatever the point spread is.

I have no idea who will win in the Houston at KC game.  Both of these teams have had horrible success in the playoffs, and someone has to win it, but ultimately I think whomever comes out of this game as a winner will lose to Baltimore in the AFC Championship.

This is Baltimore's year.  I just don't see anyone beating them, unless they manage to beat themselves with penalties and turnovers.

I have a former player still in the NFL and his team is still alive in the playoffs. I talked to him last night and he told me to tell my 16 yr old son that he has a deal for him. If my former player’s team wins the Super Bowl, he will be buying a brand new Lamborghini... He promised to take my son to and from school in it! My son attends the same HS my former player did. The funny thing is, my son is a gamer, and couldn’t even say on what team my former player plays!
Not likely the team goes that far, but a nice gesture nonetheless.

Minn CAN beat the whiners

Hawks CAN beat the cheeseheads

Tenn CAN beat the Ravens

houston CAN beat KC

Hawks O-line might be too decimated to handle packers D-line, but danger Russ...

KC is peaking at the right time, and their D is better than people think, but jj  watt...

Ravens can get by without Ingram, but, Travis Henry....

49ers are loaded, but minn just held the Saints to 20

and Epstein didn’t kill himself...

Divisional round NFL odds

From cbssports. My team went out last weekend (as I suspected), so what do I know. I would've picked the Ravens and Chiefs instead for this week, but we'll see (any given Sat/Sun). Just looking forward to watching, not looking forward to withdrawal symptoms after SB...

Well... 9ers made that first drive look too easy...

That’s for sure.

I would take the dogs in every single one of those games.  A 9.5 spread in a playoff game is just nuts.

Well they seem to have gotten the first game right, 9ers D is just too much, and Cousins is not to be confused with Russell Wilson. He’s like a statue of a tackling dummy...🙄

Close to the vest for what on Saturday?  The season was over.  There was nothing to prepare for.  There was nothing to veil or be subversive about.  Be a man, and answer the f'ing questions, no matter how stupid or repetitive they seem to be.  That's part of the job, and any other "professional" would handle it with respect and dignity.  But Belichick has neither respect, grace, manners, humility, or dignity in anything he says or does.  He flips the middle finger at the press with his waste of time pressers, and he went out of his way to wear the ugliest mandated NFL attire on game day so as to give the NFL the middle finger as well.  Everything about this man is rude, condescending, arrogant, belligerent and mean.

I've loved Belichick's post game conferences over the past twenty years.  He gives those idiot questions exactly what they deserve.

We've absolutely reveled in the hatred that we've received from the rest of the nation, and even if it's over now, our great era happened and there's nothing anybody can do about it.  The Eastern elitists.  The wine and cheese crowd.  The people with those horrible New England accents.  Their team has dominated the football world for two decades.  Not to mention four World Series wins during the same period.

I will admit that it's no fun not having a dog in the remaining fight.  I won't watch any more games. We lost our playoff game. There's nothing left to watch.

One last comment, though.

Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback to ever walk the earth.  Even if hubris and greed prevent him from retiring--even if, God forbid, he tries to play with diminished skills somewhere else, his legacy will remain untarnished.  I've never seen anything like him, and whether they would admit it or not, neither has anybody else.  Brady is the GOAT.  He's provided us great entertainment and great pride. 

Thanks, Tommy.  Thanks, Bill. Thanks, Mr. Kraft. Nothing lasts forever, but what a ride!

The Titans are 9-3 since Tannyhill took over as starting QB. That includes wins over the other two remaining AFC playoff teams the Chiefs and Texans.

Besides, I’m not certain the Ravens were much more than a paper Tiger. Tennessee just gave the rest of the league a blueprint to beating Lamar Jackson. Make him throw 50 times!

Wow, good thing I don't bet, I'd have lost on the Pats and the Ravens. I had no idea the Titans were that competitive. Henry is incredible, and Tannehill sure has come into his own after many so-so years at Miami. Vrabel must be the real deal too, he did have a good mentor even if they didn't part amicably...

I had the 49ers right.

Today I'd bet on the Chiefs and the Seahawks. I want to pick the Packers and they may win (at home), some weeks they looked great, others they seemed a little flat. But with my track record, I wouldn't bet a nickel.

How about Tom Brady is the greatest QB of the 2000's??? I seriously doubt he would have lasted in the 70's era when QB's were fair game and not protected like little school girls in today's NFL. I take nothing away from his accomplishments, but he is hardly the greatest QB to ever walk the earth...lol.

I would take the Snake, Big Ben, Brees, Manning or Favre any day over Brady, on any team, other than the Pats.

We're a Pats household, but can Joe Montana get a little respect here? IMO this is a little like the Nicklaus v Woods golf GOAT debate but that's another dozen threads...

Absolutely! I loved watching Montana play. I just think Montana is in a ......... group of one, all by himself...lol. He would be my pick for GOAT as far as QB's. I listed the guys I did because I tend to like "tough, gritty" football players. Montana a mix of tough, gritty, cluth and finesse like I've never seen before. Brees is as close to him as I can think of.
